For any company measuring large volumes of gas, unseen pipeline flow conditions are a reality. System maintenance and routine checks prevent some reading inaccuracies, but not all. When meters are not reading accurately, the utility is either under-billing or over-billing customers. Either way, someone is losing out. The gas utility needed a solution that would provide continuous meter reading accuracy under all circumstances. They also wanted a solution that alerts them to changes and potential issues. These problem alerts need to be received before they impact service to customers or cause costly issues to the utility.
